:thumbsup:2000#? You can tow that behind a yugo. All you guys using a kenworth tractor to tow your tool trailers? Sheeesh. But for my time and wear on my truck I’m paying the $600 to have it delivered.
Where is (city) the chipper?
Where is it?When I talk to the salesperson who has the machine, he seems a little "too" interested in my buying "as is" and having it shipped - when he and I speak, I'm weighing in on options of me checking out the machine for final approval before handing over the cash (If I come up there...) I also have contact with the previous owner of the machine (via info from the manufacturer) who is a home builder like I am, and no longer has any stake in the machine so nothing to gain by pulling anything over on me. He says the machine worked perfectly for him when he had it - mechanically sound, visually old - has ample rust, which I'm okay with. He was the last to use it before he traded it in to this dealer for a skid steer, simply because he wasn't using it much. I'm looking into equipment yards near the machine to see about having a mechanic look it over, and when I talk to the previous owner I feel like hiring a mechanic or making the trip would be a waste of time and money.
So at the moment, I'm back to thinking just get it shipped if I get a good price w/ insurance, history, and decent reviews. I've now received a 700 bid on uShip from someone with multiyear history and good reviews, but does not appear to have insurance, and I don't think I want to ship without insurance coverage in case "they lose it". Still hopeful of a couple of "low boy" partial load quotes that are pending at the moment - not confirmed yet, but they have insurance, and references...
